M. H. Boroson
M. H. Boroson’s historical fantasy novel The Girl With Ghost Eyes was published at the end of 2015. In a Starred Review, Publishers Weekly called it “a brilliant tale of magic, monsters, and kung fu in the San Francisco Chinatown of 1898.”
It was Library Journal’s Debut of the Month, Goodreads newsletter’s Best Book of the Month, and Fantasy Book Critic’s #1 Debut of the Year. Barnes & Noble’s official blog said the novel is “a joy to read.” The AV Club compared it to the work of Hayao Miyazaki and called Boroson “a bright new voice in fantasy.” Bustle.com named it one the the 15 best Diverse Fantasy Novels. Libraryreads listed it in their Top Ten Books of the Month. Two sequels are under contract, and it is being developed as a television series.
Boroson has been documenting the oral histories of Chinese Americans since he was nine years old, paying special attention to ghost lore. He lives in Colorado Springs.
